The title of this free-wheeling, absurdist action adventure film says it all. The movie is a wild ride through the multiverse, tearing across time and space as it explores the complexities of family, the immigrant experience, and what it’s like to be a human today. Michelle Yeoh plays Evelyn, a beleaguered laundromat owner and mother who finds herself dropped into the role of unlikely hero, charged with battling a bizarre cast of characters to save the world.
One of the film’s directors, Daniel Kwan, has talked about how, in the process of researching ADHD as background for Evelyn’s character, he realized he has ADHD himself. The movie is, in many ways, a celebration of the ADHD brain, in all its crowded, colorful glory.
“It's a very interesting representation of ADHD for women that delves into our struggles in a unique way. It has some unexpected, insightful and extremely relatable scenes.” —Lisa, Arizona
“The Daniels' representation of the multiverses resonates with how I play out different decisions in my life — but with more action and ridiculousness.” — Catherine, Canada
